ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. - A man “fishing” was actually the one who got caught by the Ramapo Police Department.

This week, an officer from the Ramapo Police Department was on patrol when he spotted a suspicious suspect “fishing” for mail from a United States Postal Service mailbox on a Ramapo street.

Police said that the suspect - whose name was not released - attached a glue trap to a string and continually dropped the trap into the mailbox, pulling out nearly a dozen pieces of mail containing checks.

After being spotted, the suspect was brought into custody by the officer and may face federal charges for his “fishing” expedition.
